General information

Tignes - Val d'Isère is one of the most famous ski areas in the Alps, and includes Tignes and Val d'Isère. The region covers a very large area, and spreads itself across a huge range of altitudes. Experienced skiers and snowboarders will be impressed with the many black pistes and off piste options. Novices and fans of relaxed ski touring can head for the longer, wider blue pistes. The area also benefits from a fantastic snow record. Espace Killy is one of the best ski regions in Europe.

The slope down the Roche de Bellevarde, or more commonly know, 'Le Face', is a black piste that starts on the mountain top (2827 meters / 9,300 feet) and ends a kilometre lower at Val d'Isère!
Free riders head out to Le Spot, an unpisted area near Tignes accessible with the chair lift Col des Ves. Freestylers divide their attention between 2 boarder cross, 2 half pipes and 2 snow parks.

There are two glaciers in Espace Killy, which allow you to ski 10 months per year. The glaciers are also well worth a visit in the winter. Queues at the lifts are rare as the lift system is modern and well thought out. There are plenty of chair lifts with a windshield, cabin lifts and funiculars, (mountain trains), that help you up to the of the mountain in swift trip.
 
Guests staying in Tignes have the choice between two lift passes: the Super Tignes lift pass for the ski area of Tignes or a lift pass for the entire Espace Killy ski area. You can also extend the lift pass for one or two days on location (approx. € 27,50 p.d.). Outside of peak season, Espace Killy lift passes are not sold and sometimes only the pistes on the glacier are open. If you are staying in Val d'Isère the lift pass is included with your stay.
